Salvation Army - Please Donate

Perhaps you have cut back this year on your holiday spending with all the recession news. It seems to me that the days of the year are just flying by. Soon Christmas will be here, and then gone.

Perhaps you have decided to take some of the commercialism out of the Christmas season, as I have. The season is, for me, what I can give, not what I buy.

For a number of years I have braved the cold and stood in front of the Woodstock Jewel to ring the bell of the Salvation Army. Usually I pick one of the coldest days of the year. Maybe that's what kept me from picking a day this year. I wasn't there, and I didn't see many bellringers this year.

The services of the Salvation Army go on, whether or not anyone mans a kettle. Consider mailing your donation directly to the Salvation Army, 290 W. Crystal Lake Avenue, Crystal Lake, IL 60014. Please do more than "consider" it; please mail it - today or tomorrow. Before you forget.
